A north London priest is to scale new heights in an unusual bid to save his crumbling church.
Father Hunter will have no food or water with him
Despite a fear of heights, Father Malcolm Hunter will spend 10 days and nights living on the steep roof of St Michael's Church in Camden Town.
With only a radio, mobile, waterproofs and toothbrush, he will be reliant on passers-by for food and water.
He aims to raise £100,000 towards a new roof so the church can continue to be a shelter for the area's homeless.
The stunt will mean the football fan will miss Saturday's crunch World Cup England match against Portugal, but he expects to miss his family the most.
Father Hunter told BBC News: "In Camden Town, a lot of people are marginalised and have no roof over their heads so I'm going to be homeless too.
"We have to do something desperate to raise this sort of money in such a short time."
Overall, the Grade-II listed church needs to raise £1m for restoration work.
However if they can reach a £100,000 target by Christmas, the Heritage Lottery Fund has promised them £350,000 towards costs.
